The Danubius Young Scientist Award will be granted to 14 young scientists -one in each country that is part of the EUSDR. The award seeks to encourage young scientists to engage themselves in the scientific examination of problems and questions specifically related to the Danube and to stimulate the scientific community in the Danube region. The award will be endowed with 1.200,- Euros for each winner of the young scientist award.

The candidate has to be nominated by his/her hosting scientific organisation (university, academy of sciences, etc.) meaning that the candidate himself / herself cannot apply for the award. Every academic institution can only nominate one candidate for their entire institution (not one candidate per institute, faculty etc.).

An international expert jury will be established (including members of the Danube Rectors ́ Conference) that will be responsible for assessing all incoming nominations and for drawing up a final ranking. The most highly ranked candidate from each of the countries of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region will be recommended for the award. The award ceremony is expected to take place in Austria in October 2015.

> Nominations will be accepted in electronic format and in English only.
